    Very much enjoyed your last two sets of ‘illustrating the OED word of the day’, especially ‘wayzgoose’ :-)
    My team went on an attempted wayzgoose excursion last week, intended to be to the Perch but we only made it as far as the JT…

      Thanks! I’m glad you had a wayzgoose – I hope that you’re all working by candlelight now.

    Nowadays most of us lives in houses not home.

    Chicago is now home to a print of Imogen’s collage, The Bottle Dragon! She’s officially a talented artist noticed worldwide! Imogen, you deserve EVERY success!

    Impressive and hard work! Your blackboard is good as well =) Keep on the good work!

    Pictures great but prefer your lexicography. I like writing and it affords me a greater vocabulary to” articulate”. Do you or no of a book of lexicography or eugenics. I would be very interested.

      Are you sure you meant eugenics? Simon Winchester’s “The surgeon of Crowthorne” is a good book about lexicography, or you can just read the dictionary.

    I love your blackboard. I love the sheet exuberant generosity of subject matter, colour and humour. I’m madly jealous of your talent and think you deserve to be excruciatingly busy illustrating childrens’ books, cookbooks and who knows what else.

    I love your new website – it makes a lovely home for your beautiful pictures :)

    Absolutely beautiful! Some of the landscape sketches remind me of Quentin Blake

    Huzzah! I shall have a way to enjoy your art! Granted it’s not having the privilege and pleasure of flipping through your sketchbooks, but I take what I can get. 😀

    I found the perfect frame for your card, btw, and it now sits proudly displayed on my shelf. Well, I need to find it a good mat, but for now I’m pleased with it. I shall have to send you a picture, it really is a perfect frame, I feel!

    Very exciting! Wishing you all the best in your new home on the Net :)

    May I be the first to congratulate you….
